If presidential nominee Ted Cruz were given the opportunity to ask Hillary Clinton one question, it would be this: “Why should anyone believe a third term of the same failed policies would produce anything different?”
This question has nothing to do with immigration, the environment, or health care. Cruz was simply pointing out the fact that recent attempts to solve income inequality have been repeated failures.
By repeating the same thing over and over again, financial struggles are merely increasing.
“Over the last six-and-a-half years, the rich have gotten richer and hard-working men and women across America have seen their lives get harder and harder,” Cruz said during an exclusive interview with The Federalist on his campaign bus. “The people who have been hurt the most are the most vulnerable. Young people, Hispanics, African-Americans, single moms.” “We’ve seen for two terms now the big government policies you and Barack Obama advocate don’t work.”
His analysis at the Federalist states,
“I think she would respond with high level rhetoric about income inequality that would not address any of the substance,” Cruz told The Federalist. “And then I hope to come right back at her with: I emphatically agree income inequality is a tremendously important problem. That’s why it is such a compelling indictment of your record that it’s increased dramatically under your policies.”
In fact, income inequality has worsened dramatically in the past eight years.
Between 2007, when the Recession began, and 2013, the state has had a net loss of more than 100,000 households making between $25,000 and $100,000, while all other categories on either side showed gains. The four income brackets that comprise that range are the largest in the state.
Cruz is a man who hopes to change this and the progressivism that Obama has ushered in.
There needs to be an agenda for the 2016 election that rids the notion that the GOP party is, in the words of Cruz, “rich and out of touch, while Democrats are the party of the working man.”
Cruz continues to say, “My dad came to America with nothing, washing dishes, making 50 cents an hour. When I was in high school, my parents went bankrupt,” Cruz said. In contrast, he noted, “Hillary and Bill Clinton have made hundreds of millions of dollars exploiting their government service.”
